DH has vetoed this lovely welsh name so I give it to you all as a present:

Iolo
(pronouced a bit like Yollo)

MolotovBomb Tue 23-Oct-12 10:13:22

I shall add to the gift-giving: you may all have Carmine and Sebastian. Too 'gay', apparently, according to my usually very open-minded DH ...

Popumpkin Tue 23-Oct-12 10:28:39

Sebastian is also "too gay" for my DH Molotov, along with Elliot & Gabriel hmm.

I love Sebastian.

Rhubarbgarden Tue 23-Oct-12 10:33:17

I love Sebastian too. My dh said it was too 'Posh Boy'.

Yo-yo

I will also let you have Gabriel (too gay) and Rupert ('you're not giving birth to a bear'). Turns out it's a girl but you may have Madeleine (too posh...10 mins later he came up with Juliana!) and Ivy ('are we having a 90 year old?'). God help me. confused

I will throw Cassell into the mix. What a gorgeous name for a baby, a little boy and a very sexy man.

chocolatetester1 Tue 23-Oct-12 14:21:13

I donate Beatrice, Elizabeth and Rosina. I have 2 boys and shall not be having any more so have no further use for my fave girls names. (Silent melodramatic sob grin).

HowlingOScara Tue 23-Oct-12 14:27:33

Oh god no, not Cassell. I have a relative called that and he is anything but a sexy man...he's creepy with 70s pornstar style 'tache <shudder>

I know a Iolo. He's a lovely chap.

You can all have my DH's suggestions of Lysander and Anvar as they will NEVER be used by us!

And sadly, the gift of Abraham, whos name was laughed out of town by our families angry Still might use this, but lie up until we register him. If I actually have another child of course.

Ooh... I love Sebastian. It's my lovely nephew's name.

I will donate Rory, Innes and Struan. Rory is my favourite ever but DH has vetoed these for DS (due in 5 weeks) on the basis that apparently Rory is the "name of an alcoholic". Struan is "made up" and Innes woukd be shortened to "Innit".

Oh.... I'll also donate Angus ("Aberdeen Angus") and Ben ("Ben-der" and "Ben-Dover").

As yiu can see, DH is very open minded hmm

Wasn't there a Iolo on one of the Springwatch progammes? A lovely Welsh chap.

My friend wanted to call her DS Rory, but she has a bit of lisp thing going on and she would have said Wowy.

Iolo is on my DPs list of extremely welshy names and is the only one I could possibly tolerate. The only thing that puts me off is that teenagers are apparently saying it now as a sort of 'whatever' statement, as it stands for 'you only live once'.

But I suppose in a couple of years that phrase will be forgotten.

babyblabber Wed 24-Oct-12 20:21:25

I'll donate Lola which I love but DH says is the name of a pre-operative transsexual or a Russian prostitute sad

MrsHBaby3 Thu 25-Oct-12 14:22:02

I only seem to be able to make boys,so I donate Zara, Daisy and Amelia smile

Wafflenose Thu 25-Oct-12 14:23:50

I donate Sennen.

I thought I was so clever, coming up with it years ago for a putative dc3, but we're not having any more!

Startailoforangeandgold Thu 25-Oct-12 14:26:52

Rebecca, I'd have loved a little Becky, but she was DH's undeniably mad ex.

CajaDeLaMemoria Thu 25-Oct-12 14:34:11

I always thought I'd have a Lysander. Loved A Midsummer Nights Dream as a child!

I want a Pablo. But I can't see DH going for it...he likes Harry. Everything is Harry. The lizard started as Harry, the puppy was almost Harry, the cat is Harry....

mymatemax Thu 25-Oct-12 14:34:19

Waffle, I honestly read that as I donate Semen!

DH vetoed, Daisy its not a bloody cow
Barnaby - Not a bloody bear
Rufus - posh gay boy
anything else i suggested from the average & bland to the extreme was vetoed by dh. our dc were eventually given the only names dh didnt make a rude comment about

MrsHBaby3 Thu 25-Oct-12 15:03:56

Waffle I also read Semen, lol! I like Sennen though, Sennen Cove in Cornwall is beautiful!

SomewhereInCanada Thu 25-Oct-12 15:20:30

I donate Alexander. DH immediately shortened it to Sandy and it became a no-no as that's the name of MIL's dog.

For girls's names I donate anything starting with a V. Our surname starts with a D.

WitchesTit Thu 25-Oct-12 15:37:26

You may have <drum roll>

Taliesin. (pronounced Tally-essin)

Oh it makes me weak at the knees but we are having a girl <sob>

minipie Thu 25-Oct-12 15:56:52

I will give you all

Marianne - lovely but name of DH's bonkers friend

Bryony - I like but apparently it's too much like Brian

Rowan - doesn't work with our surname

Corin - love this name but will never get DH to agree

Digby - we are just not cool enough to use this grin

shinyblackgrape Thu 25-Oct-12 15:59:01

I luuuurrrve Marianne and Marianna! So many lovely girls names and hardly any nice boy ones - not helped by a hypercritical DH!
